Code Break

Code Break is a fun, brain teasing, team building activity for the group that wants to exercise their brains, not their bodies. Work against the clock with your team to solve mind puzzles, logic problems, riddles and more. Put your brainpower to the test with our fun battle of wits!

  • Code Break is a team building activity that has participants using Smartphone technology.
  • Code Break is a great cognitive team building activity for large and small groups.
  • Participants puzzle over a variety of brain teasers in our Code Break team building activity.

Can your team break the code?

Finding a team building event, without the trip around the city or the physical demands, can be a challenge in itself. Code Break uses your group's mental strength and problem solving skills, with our easy to use, thought provoking activity.

Code Break combines picto-puzzles, brain games and on the spot thinking into a fun team building activity. This activity will exercise your mind using brainteasers that will inspire participants to put their heads together to find the answers and earn points.

Groups split into small teams and, when the time comes to start, work together to complete as many of our challenges as they can in the time provided. The more difficult the challenge, the more points available for the team to earn, and climb the leaderboard.

Using our custom-built smartphone app, groups can take part in this activity at any time or place. It's extremely easy to get started, and is a great fit for any occasion and any size group. So put on your thinking cap and take a crack at becoming a master code breaker!

Event Overview & Features

Code Break uses our custom-built smartphone application, making it suitable for groups of any size, in any location. Once the game starts, every player will have a chance to participate in a riddle or puzzle to earn points for the team, and work together to solve challenges. Teams answer the challenges right on their smartphone and find out instantly if they are correct. As Code Break players get more correct answers, they earn points, and climb the live leaderboard racing against the other teams. At the end of the activity no more challenges can be submitted and the team at the top of the leaderboard is the winner!

    "This was truly an event that anyone could do. We do have some people who are physically challenged and this event eliminates that issue. If care is taken with the formation of the teams, it also allows the more timid staff to feel less conspicuous when you have them teamed with some extroverts. I thought it was the perfect team building exercise."

    "Code Break was easy to use and fun for the team. Very good contact, we had no problems at all."
